You would want to leave some hang anyway due to the fact that if you have to ever take them off for any reason (I can't think of one but you never know), then you would never be able to get them back on if you trimmed to much off. I don't know how much slack you have, but my Pro-Armor's probably only have 2-3 inches at the most on any strap, and I dont see how it is a problem at all except for cleaning the mud off. It is not like it can get caught in your wheel or anything. However, i do like Baxter's idea as well.
